Water Project Continues For Irrigation F armers When the farmers needed more water for irrigation in the area about five mile s north- east of Fairview, they knew who to approach to get the best and quickest results - Vic Norlin. Norlin, who is project man- ager of the Board of Control, Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project, with other people, checked out the situation for the farmers, whowere ingreat oeed of water for their crops. The solution was found when the board of control decided to pump waste water from drain ditches, which eventually just ended up in the river, to later- al ditches, which are used in- stead of the irrigation canal. A pump handling 5,000 gal- Ions a minute was used during the first week when it was still in the experimental stages. Norlin noted they hoped to receive and install a larger pump on Wednesday. The pump, with a 12 - inch diameter syn- thetic rubber tubing, will now handle 16 cubic feet per second (a couple theusandzalluns mo/-e than the original one). The water is being carried a distance of about 30 feet from one ditch to the other by a 150 foot in length tube. It will serve as a supplemental supply to 1,000 to 1,200 acres, Norlin reported, involving about five or six farms. Savage Schools Opening Notice Savage Public Schools will open Aug. 23, according toMel-, vin M. Vossler, Superintendent of Schools. Hours will be from 8:30 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. Buses and school lunches will be available that day. The faculty includes: Mrs. Thelma Redman, grades 1 and 2; Mrs. Peggy Winchell, grade 3; Miss Theron Minser, grade 4; Mrs. Nesha Lange, grade 5; Mrs. Ruth Maschera, grade 6; Mrs. Keith Quale, grade 7 and Miss Roberta Steckler, librari- an and English. Also:. Don Carter, social stu- dies and athletics; Keith Quaie, math and athletics; Alan Edge- mend, grade and H; S. music; Eugene Giese, science andH. S. Principal; Mrs. Claudia Edg- mend, English andGerman; Jim Reinhardt, commerce and ath- letics. The farmers seemed pleas- ed with the project, the manager said, noting they furnished their own power for the diesel motor used inthe first stages. The pro- ject ofice is supplying andpur- chasing the entire outfit at a cost of about $7,000, "which will not involve any of the farm- er' s money ,' ' Norlin happily re- ported. The operation, which is do- ing ',fairly well," will continue during peak demands, and re- main permanent, although the equipment is portable. The demand has been exceed- ing the supply, Norlin stated, but we are .hoping to modernize the project as soon as possible. i NOTICE Howard Hunke, Senior High Band Director, an- nounces band practice on Wednesday, Tlmrsday and Friday, July 28, 29 and 30, ..... at 6:.'30 p.m. at tim Senior Hh School band room.
